10/14/01 day 14 – it’s over.

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Those negotiations turned out to be all that was needed to end the strike. The negotiators on both sides worked practically around the clock from 1 pm Thursday to 3 am Sunday morning. Tentative terms of the contract. We go back to work tomorrow morning. I for one am glad. [Now how to approach my […]

10/10/01 what else is new?

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Geez, this has all been about the strike recently. Guess what’s been on my mind. There’s a guy, Dave Pell, who sends out his take on the news each day with links to articles from various sources. His site’s called NextDraft. He’s been focusing a lot on the terrorism/war thing recently, so if that’s what […]

10/9/01 day nine on strike

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Day 8, yesterday, brought a breakthrough of sorts: the state and the unions announced they are going back to the table Thursday 10/11/01. These sessions, I hope, will lead to an end to the strike…. though neither side seems as willing to give as they are to talk. We have given far more than the […]

10/5/01 What a day.

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

What a day. There was a huge rally at the Capitol (well, okay, 200 people or so, but quite a few considering [a] we left the picket lines fully staffed and [2] it was held at really short notice). It was great—we sang anti-Jesse Ventura songs and the Star-Spangled Banner, did some clever and appropriate […]

10/3/01 third day on strike

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

Third day on the lines, no negotiations in sight. Morale was still good today, though there were fewer people in the probably 20-mph winds and sub-60 temps. Tonight, I am resting.

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

It’s somewhat bizarre to me that I am a participant, however insignificant a part, in something that is dominating headlines in the state.

10/1/01

This post may or may not contain the following excerpt (or is it a summary?):

I work with very good people. I was out on the picket lines [for 4 1/2 hours], and so were many of my co-workers. I saw perhaps one or two people cross the picket line out of 600 DNR Central Office employees. Spirits, and public feedback, were generally quite good today. Let’s hope they stay […]
